Wadhwani Foundation U.S.: Our Mission

Wadhwani Foundation U.S. is not your traditional grantmaker. We’re a catalyst for closing America’s economic mobility gap, one learner at a time.

Our experience tells us two things: first, America’s economic mobility crisis is real. Second, closing America’s economic mobility gap is a once-in-a-generation opportunity and meeting this moment will require our best thinking, our best technology, and unparalleled collaboration.

Our initial commitment is to help upskill one million low-income adults, including individuals in lower-wage jobs, over the next 10 years

”We just need to get people into jobs sooner. Wadhwani is embracing that mentality.”

- Leah (Sr. Director Partnerships)

How We Achieve It

We’re sourcing promising innovations to upskill these learners into family-sustaining careers. Then we’re putting those innovations into the hands of community colleges, government, business, and other collaborators who can apply them at scale.
As we learn and grow, we’ll continue to work with partners to set and meet ambitious goals for making these sustainable careers the standard, not the exception.

"We go after target audiences wherever they reside. Massive need needs massive scale."

- Ajay (President/CEO)

People-Made, People-Solved, Technology-Enabled

Inequities in education, workforce, and other systems have created the economic mobility gap, but these systems are not invincible. People created these systems, and people can change them.

Our goal is to form partnerships and find solutions. So far, we’ve worked with thousands of people across nearly 20 countries on three continents. Our role is as the support and infrastructure for partners on the ground—the fuel that ignites that fire of change.

“In the U.S., the Wadhwani Foundation is creating a network of community colleges that teaches students the skills they need for jobs of the future. We are working with colleges and employers in fields where there is major need for valuable worker skill sets so together we can provide transformational economic mobility for learners in the U.S.”
